Sound card not showing itself

OS: WinXP Pro SP2

Bios V.1010

I have one main issue. I've added a new hard drive to my computer and have installed WinXP OS on the drive. Everything was looking bright as rain when I couldn't see my sound card. It essentially says that it isn't there. But on my previous install (HD failed) it was alive and kicking.

Is there software that I can rely on for a computer checkup to tell me if anything else is potentially wrong with my computer and how can I get my sound card back? I'm dying without any tunes right now.

Can you show me the way to OZ?

You may have to reinstall your mobo drivers for the sound. If you have the disk that came with the computer [not the windows cd] you should be able to reinstall the drivers from that. If you don't have the disk, you can probably get them at their web-site.
